This week we talk a lot about the recently released November patch notes, we discuss the LOTRO Lotteries, more about Fall Festival and the news with Codemasters.
Goldenstar is working on gaining reputation with the Ale Association with her Burglar and attempting to win a skeleton horse each night. Still no luck winning that mount.
Merric is now kindred with the Iron Garrison Guards and purchased the Hemorage trait. He’s attempting to tank with Guardian’s Threat stance these days.
We both ran some skimrishes and dungeons with friends helping with leveling and epic book quests.
For those interested in the “My Toes are Cold” reference in the beginning, here’s the link to the comic we are talking about from VG Cats.

Hi This is Gellon (Gell-on) from the Winfola server. I love your show and listen to it all the time I am starting my own blog, The confused hobbit which can be found at theconfusedhobbit.blogspot.com I’m afraid it isn’t very good and would like some feedback on what to improve and what people would like me to talk about. again love your show.
I saw rivendell today it was AWESOME.
Hello Goldenstar and Merric!
I started playing Lotro just 1 month ago, and i love it. I will not go into too much detail, but I started a 30 day VIP Sub with the hope of getting enough TP to eventually enjoy the game for free. As the days were coming to an end i was approaching the level cap, so i got MoM and registered the 30 Day key that came with it. Sadly… The discount every F2Per’s wanted came out just 3 days after. After a long process of trying to purchase the quest packs while VIP i figured out my only option was to end my subscription (without getting 35 days of free sub time) to get the quest pack. Grudgingly i did it. (Because my whole Goal was to purchase These quest packs) My bitterness toward turbine will far outlast the time i play this game. Turbine will not receive another Penny of mine, But as i heard you mention this topic on your podcast i had to comment. All turbine needs to do is Add a Dialog Box that states “You Currently have Access to this Content already because of your Account Status, Do you wish to purchase it anyway?”. That would Fix Everyone’s problems, including the “not so bright” people who would purchase something they already have access to.
Keep up the good work, Major
P.S. I am not against the lore, i just wanted to name my character what i have been called over the last 7 years of my E-Life.
Merric,While watching one of your instructional videos, I noticed that you were able to have the quick slot information show up at the top of the interface.
My question is how do you get that to show up at the top of the screen?
I have searched all the options and cannot figure how to do it.
Thanking you in advance for any info,
Special thank you to Sadorhael from Norway for their podcast review!
